Upgrading to impact resistant glass all around your new home is expensive (up to $20,000 depending on the builder and size of the home). Many of my clients have found it would take decades to recoup the added cost through reduced home owner's insurance premiums.
If you're looking at new homes in Lakewood Ranch, Venice and The West Villages, or Sarasota, you need a new home specialist. Remember, new construction costs the same as the builder's advertised prices when you're working with your own Realtor.
